The survivalists living on Great Slave Lake in Canada’s Northwest Territories say it’s not man that threatens their existence, it’s woman: Mother Nature. “Ice Lake Rebels” follows a handful of residents who willingly face food shortages, dangerous terrain and deadly weather conditions for off-the-grid freedom. Because they reside in floating homes or houseboats and not on land, the denizens of Great Slave Lake are not subjected to taxation and the rule of law. However, their frozen utopia isn’t always what it’s cracked up to be, especially when the ice begins to thaw beneath their homes. The unpredictable conditions mean competition is fierce for the lake’s most secure locations and for its scarce supplies.
